Portland Parks & Recreation - Winter 2013

Dance • Theatre • Music The Peninsula Performing Arts Academy provides a variety of choices of performance arts to all ages! Our Academy focuses on three mediums: Theatre, Dance & Music.

6 months - 4 years

For the youngest participants we have our “Exploring Movement” classes. These classes are designed to engage parents & children in a positive, fun & active experience. If you & your child are interested in music, be sure to check-out our “Music - Exploring Together!” course located with the Music Program.

3 years - 6 years

At age 3, children are eligible to join our progression based educational arts programs. Students ages 3-6 can work on their balance & coordination with our Level I dance classes. These courses are traditionally some of our most popular courses and they focus on the introduction to various dance mediums, including: creative movement, ballet, tap, and hip-hop.

6 years - 14 years

Students can further develop their dance technique in ballet, tap, or hip-hop. Through our Theater program, students can participate in a performing piece that integrates vocal music, dance and theatre arts. The “American Musical Showcase” class is an interactive and popular program that performs well-known Broadway shows quarterly. Students enrolled in most Level I dance programs or above will participate alongside the theater students to make the show truly the culminating center of the performing arts academy. Children may repeat our classes as new concepts & materials will continue to be introduced. At age 6, students can enroll for private guitar, piano, violin, or vocal lessons held weekly at Peninsula at an incredible value.

14 years & up

For our students who are 14 & up, we offer a variety of courses in every category. Classes include: Guitar, Ballet, Tap and Theatre. In addition the center offers a wide variety of adult fitness courses and courses designed for both parent & child to attend.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Her studies continued at the University of Oregon where she performed in both classical dance concerts and musical theater productions. Mara still performs with PP&Rs “Laurelhurst Dancers”.

Norah Zaharakis has been an active member in theatre as both a student and teacher for the past fifteen years. She studied vocal music & theatre at Humbolt State University in California. Some of her most recent e­ xperiences are volunteering with the Portland Theatre Brigade and interning at the Pendleton Story Theatre Workshop. Welcome to the team, Norah! Carlos Lasuncet moved to North Portland from Los Angeles in 2007. He brought with him years of music experience from working in recording studios and performance venues. He is a dedicated educator, working at Open Meadow Middle School as a science and music teacher. He enjoys any opportunity to share his knowledge and lifelong passion for music with children, and hopes to inspire young students to learn how to express themselves though music. Noah Kite has been in a turbulent relationship with the guitar since he was eleven. He didn’t realize it then, but that black and cream Stratocaster knock-off his mother purchased him over a decade ago was a bridge so vast it stretched beyond any horizon his kid mind could conceive. As the years progressed this slowly became evident studying with a number of other musicians and performing around Portland in a variety of bands. When he takes the time to reflect on how it helped him to flesh out his ideas it’s clear that the skills and concepts he developed expanded far beyond the framework of music. Now almost finished with his bachelors in psychology, he understands the full value of an artistic outlet and enjoys imparting the tools that develop into an enriching creative experience and more. Welcome Noah! Linda Chace is an active performer, she is a singer and guitarist and performed folk music for many years all over the west coast. She has performed in many musical theatrical productions including, “Anything Goes”, “Where’s Charli”, “Westside Story”, “Cabaret”, “Finians Rainbow”, “Amahle and the Night Vistors” and many more! Linda performs gigs with her two children, Laura and Alec throughout Portland. Linda has directed both “Suessical Junior” and “Alice in Wonderland Junior” with Peninsula Park Community Center and we are glad to have her back again this Summer. Haley Maddox is a native Portlander who has a background in musical theatre and jazz. She is currently studying voice at Portland State University and has sung in many ensembles. She was on the Cleveland High School Sundancers dance team for four years.

Laura Chace is an accomplished singer, guitarist and song-writer who performs often in the Portland area. She has been invvolved in numerous musical theatrical productions including “Honk”, “Bye Bye Birdie” , “In a Different Light” and numerous others. She was the founder of one of the first women’s teen accapella groups in her high school. She has traveled extensively to Africa, India, Austrillia, and New Zealand and incorporates musical and dance styles of those countries into her music and performances.

Mr. Thurman Landers, a second-degree black belt, has been teaching Karate since 1971. He teaches children and adult classes and is both welcoming and disciplined in his approach. He says about his class, “The martial arts are not about age; they are about attitude, the willingness to learn, and the ability to master the gifts we really have – our bodies and minds.”

INCLUSION SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) provides accommodations to individuals with disabilities/special needs, so that they may receive an equal opportunity to fully participate in programs offered citywide. How it Works

First choose the activity you’d like to do & the PP&R site at which you’d like to do it. Next, register for the class. When registering, let the person know that you will need accommodations in order to participate in the activity. Once registered, contact Inclusion Services at (503) 823-4328. If this is your first accommodation through Inclusion Services, you will need to do a phone intake with a staff member at that number. At the end of the phone intake it will be determined whether an assistant will be needed on the first day of the activity to provide on-site support at the age-appropriate class. Future assistance will be provided based on need. The inclusion staff will work with the instructor on how to support the participant & accommodate their individual needs. A general program may be adapted using auxiliary aids & services, but the basic structure of the program remains the same. Accommodations are made as needed & can be flexible & creative, ensuring the participant engages as independently as possible. If you have questions about Inclusion Services, please call 503-823-4328 V/TTY. A minimum of 10 business days (Monday-Friday) advance notice is required. The Inclusion Services staff will do their best to accommodate each participant. Register On-Line at www.PortlandParks.org 25
